The size of this reclining buddha is unbelievable. Very ornate and the size makes it hard to take a good horizontal photo. You have to put on booties to cover your shoes when you go it. It is definitely worth seeing.

Be ready to have your selfie stick because everyone needs a chance to take photos. Grounds were clean and employees were doing their job passing out water.

Wat Pho stays open until 6pm which is good as many of the city temples close at 5pm. Ladies must cover their arms and legs to enter Wat Pho.

While you’ll see skyscrapers in most parts of Bangkok,
it’s the gilded roofs of ancient pagodas that adorn
the skyline of Banglamphu, the city’s historical and
most touristic district. Hordes of tourists flock to
this area to tick quite a few must-see attractions off
their to-do list, with the Grand Palace being the most
spectacular of them all. Banglamphu is also home to
Bangkok’s infamous tourist ghetto, centered around

While the grounds are somewhat wheelchair friendly, the temples themselves are not. All temples are entered by stepping over a threshold and it is poor etiquette to step on the threshold. So even if one could get up to the... More
